Prayer for Our Bodies

Steve Matthews

devozine Shine2Loving God, we have heard that we are made in your image. We have heard that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” We have heard that our bodies are your temple. Help us to believe the truth of what we have heard. Help us to grant our bodies and spirits the grace of resting in this truth even when our faith in ourselves falters. Help us to practice believing that the skin we’re in and all that it encompasses is good. You have made us beautiful and complete just as we are.

Help us, Lord, to reflect a sense of beauty, completeness, and possibility to everyone we meet so that they too may come to believe that they are beloved.

In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
